Sports betting offers

The company is famous for their extensive range of sports betting options, and thanks to the comprehensive list of the website’s left side bar customers can see all of the sports available at a glance. These include all leading American and European sports as well as a number of minor leagues.

In addition to fantastic sports betting odds, Betfair offers special sports betting offers including over/unders, head to head, handicaps and a range of more unusual options. The company’ main betting interface allows you to compare their odds with the odds currently being offered by other bookmakers so that you can clearly see that Betfair’s odds are the best around.
